Throughout the history of the church, heretics often protested against orthodox confessions on the ground of the so-called "non-scriptural language" of the orthodox creed. They pointed out that phrases such as “of one essence with the Father,” and “one substance with the Father” were not to be found in Scripture. Heretics often used the argument “no creed but the Bible” precisely so that they could use biblical language to evade biblical truth. Those who deny the divinity of Christ Jesus, for example, would happily call Christ the “Son of God”, and then argue that, like all sons, he must have had a beginning. In this way the doctrine of the sufficiency of Scripture is used to undermine Scripture’s truth.
